    Oh my please help. I have 6 ameraucana chicks hatched 4-28 they were all supposed to be female but one made a crowing noise this morning. How can I tell if they are really female?

    You do need to post pictures. Occasionally a hen will crow, but usually it is an older hen, not a two month old so I would expect one was missexed and is a cockerel. I know of two cases of that happening, one with me and one with a friend.
